why is overscan still a thing on modern TVs
the amount of image-fuckups TVs do on their default settings is astonishing
you have one job, and that is to display a new digital image 60 (or 30 or whatever the source is) times a second
don't "enhance contrast"don't make "vibrant colors"don't do "noise reduction"don't crop itdon't make "motion more fluid"
it's not even trivial how to turn this shit off
if the "contrast" option goes from 0 to 100, what do you think the setting is for "don't do unsharp mask, but don't do a blur and contrast flattening either" ??? because, surprise, it's not 50
dear TV manufacturers, please provide a hardware switch labeled "force all the digital image enhancements off" which turns the display into a monitor
@uint8_t I recall having read that new TVs can have / that some manufacturers agreed that they would all implement a "filmmaker" mode that does that to display the movie exactly as the filmmaker intended
